In June 2011, MyPlate replaced MyPyramid.
MyPlate is part of a larger communication initiative based on 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans to help consumers make better food choices.
MyPlate is designed to remind Americans to eat healthfully; it is not intended to change consumer behavior alone.
MyPlate illustrates the five food groups using a familiar mealtime visual, a place setting.
